COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Selected as a benchmark for the Beer Judge Certification Program used in all American based beer judgings. Centennial IPA has quickly become the IPA of choice. Pour yourself a pint of this complex flavorful ale and bask in the frothy head’s floral bouquet. Relish the immense citrus accents, achieved by the abundance of dry hopping. This ale’s sweet, malty undertones balance the hop character with a finish that never turns too bitter.

Pours an amber orange with a thin white head. Great floral hop aroma with a touch of orange citrus. Taste is bitter grapefruit hops up front, some sweet maltiness to follow, and then the hops come back in the finish.

12oz bottle. hazy amber pour with a thinnish tan head. aroma of citrus, pine and malty sweetness. taste is grapefruit and grassy earthiness. thin slick texture. finishes with a good even bitter. the palate is the most noticeable thing for me on this one. very drinkable.

One of the better IPA’s out there; this one is powerfully hoppy and dry, but with a good solid and complex malt backbone to support it. Nice hazy light brown color; aromas of piney hops. Simple, strong, and refreshing.

12oz bottle. Looks like Archer shipped me a not-quite-fresh bottle, those bastards! A decent IPA, but the hops aren’t much to write home about. The aroma is actually pretty nice, with lots of orange and tangerine fruitiness, backed by some sweet candy malt, but the flavor is too malt heavy with not enough hop punch. Nice smooth body. I would love to get this fresher on tap, but this bottle seems a little tired.

guzzler67 (1650) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Cloudy, amber/orange appearance with a large, off white head and good lacing. Citrusy hops lead off the aroma with sweet malts close behind. An ebb and flow of tastes between the malty sweetness, more evident early on, and the resinous, piney, bitter flavors that carry through to the aftertaste. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel witha a long lasting finish.

mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUN 19, 2009
12 oz. bottle. average khaki creamy head (that lasts) into lively golden body with good lacing present. aromas of well balanced citrus hops (not overwhelming). flavor is initially lightly sweet then immediately becomes more intense and the intensity grows to a moderate bitterness. somewhat creamy mouthfeel. long lasting finish duration. damn fine IPA.

GJF (1492) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JUN 19, 2009
This is all about the finish to me. There’s a sweet aroma and a fairly balanced sweet and hoppy flavor, but the finish is really dry that ends up bursting into a pine and citrus hop flavor. Really nice.

Cloudy orange pour with minimal head and no lacing. Aroma is lovely of earthy pine and citrus/lemony hops. The flavor is wonderfully bitter that strangely has a sweet aftertaste. Mouth feel is slightly metallic but is creamy and has nice medium carbonation. Overall is solid and drinkable.
